  1. Eh…. Masturbating.

    Also, if you work in a place with lots of dust and sand, apply it to your face and it’s easier to get that stuff off you.

  2. You can use it for chapped lips. You can use it for lube for anal. You can rub it all over your body for a shine and moisture. and you can put a bunch in a kiddie pool and wrestle around in it in white shirts. Good times Good times!
    : )

  3. Protect your lips from harsh weather using it.
    Using a bud, apply it to your inner nose, to prevent tear ducts from drying up. It seems to help rhinitis in some way.

  4. im a mechanic and we use it all the time for all sorts of things (putting axle seals in ect) and it probably does have a million uses i suppose

  5. it was first used by oil workers as an ointment for burns scratches and what not. would be good for a guy with damaged hands looking to avoid infection when working in the field

  6. Lip balm, healing scrapes/cuts, moisturizer.

    There’s a whole bunch, you can probably find some on google!

  7. i use it as a base 4 my eye make-up 2 make it stick, i use it to moisturize my lips(it makes in amazing lip gloss-just tastes kinda nasty but oh well still shiny and moisturizing) lol, i use it on my eyebrows after i pluck them so it reduces the redness

  12. Below are but a few of the many uses people have found for the wonder ointment, Vaseline Petroleum Jelly:
    Water Rings on Wood Furniture:
    Rub petroleum into damaged area with your fingers and let stand for a few hours or if possible overnight. In the morning remove excess jelly with a paper towel and buff with a soft cloth.

    Super Glue Cap:
    Often after it’s first use, the super glue cap ends up stuck fast to the tube and can’t be used again. Put a thick coating of jelly inside the cap threads to keep it from gluing itself shut. This will work on any cap or lid that may stick.

    To Shine Shoes:
    A thin coating of jelly on shoes, boots and purses will keep them looking great and repel water and road salt. Wipe on a thin layer and wipe off excess with a soft cloth.

    Squeaky Doors:
    Quiet a squeaky door hinge with a coating of petroleum jelly on the hinge pin. Your door will be quiet and you don’t have to worry about messy drips.

    Keep Your Hands Clean:
    No matter what the chore, if it is messy rub on Petroleum Jelly before you begin. It will keep paint, stain, car grease, and garden dirt from embedding in your skin. It will soften your hands while protecting your skin. Just wipe off with paper towel or an old rag for clean up.

    Hair Coloring:
    To keep hair color from staining your skin, apply Petroleum Jelly along hairline and ears before you begin.

    Cuts and Sores:
    When Petroleum Jelly first hit the market, it’s purpose was for protecting cuts and scrapes by acting as a barrier to keep out moisture and bacteria.

    Moisturizer:
    If you have sensitive skin Petroleum Jelly can be used as an all over body moisturizer. It contains no chemicals or perfumes.

    Car Battery Posts:
    Stop battery post corrosion by applying Petroleum Jelly on the terminals.

    Outdoor Lights:
    A thin coating of Petroleum Jelly on light bulb threads will prevent them from sticking when they need to be replaced.

    Nail Polish:
    Rub Petroleum Jelly on the skin around your nails before polishing. If you make a mistake it can be wiped off when your nails are dry and it softens cuticles at the same time.

    Paint Cans:
    Petroleum Jelly forms an air tight seal when applied around the inside edge of the can.

    Frozen Locks:
    To keep your locks from freezing, smear Petroleum Jelly on the shaft of the key and insert it into the lock. Work the key and lock 4 or 5 times to lubricate the tumblers. This is also a good remedy for keys and locks that just don’t seem to work smoothly together.

    Sticky Drawers:
    Apply petroleum Jelly along the runner on a sticky drawer to make it slide more freely.

    Rough Feet:
    If you are like so many people, your feet are hard, calloused and dry. Apply petroleum Jelly to your feet after bathing or showering. Apply within the first three minutes of bathing before the moisture on your skin evaporates. It will make your feet softer, and act as a moisture barrier to keep your feet from drying out.

    Garbage Can Lids:
    In the winter rubber garbage can lids can freeze to the can. A thin coat of Petroleum Jelly will keep it from sticking.

    Chapped Lips:
    Apply as needed.

    Makeup Remover:
    Use as you would any makeup remover
    . It removes makeup safely while softening your skin.

    Diaper Rash:
    Use in place of expensive ointments and creams to prevent rash.

    Tight Finger Rings:
    Apply to your finger and the ring
    will slide off.

    Nuts and Bolts:
    Keep nuts, bolts and screws from rusting by coating with Petroleum before using.

  13. It’s true! Vaseline has MANY uses.

    You can use it to hydrate chapped or dry lips.
    You can mix it with pigments to create a tinted lip balm.
    You can use it on rough patches of skin.
    You can use it to moisturize cuticles.
    You can use it for masturbation.
    You can use it for minor scrapes.
    You can use it all over your skin for moisturization.

  14. my friend puts it on her feet after she gets out of the shower and immediate puts socks on and she said it makes her feet really smooth and soft

  15. -In place of clear mascara
    -Lip balm
    -Apply a tiny layer to your eyelid and it can hold eye pigments and shadow better than a dry eye
    -To treat dry patches on your skin or lips (this is my miracle “lotion” in the winter time when my skin is super dry),
    -Put some vaseline on the ends of your hair before you go in the shower and shampoo and it’s so much easier to straighten once the hair is all dried,
    -I’ve even heard of putting it on your teeth, but I don’t know what purpose that serves.
    -Preventing and treating cuts

  16. Ive seen guys use it as gel in short spikey hair! its even water proof, so pool party hair gel is another use.
